In a dazzling display of holiday splendor, Miami Seaquarium will transform into a Winter Wonderland for its annual Winter Nights and Lights Celebration, Dec. 18-30.
Complete with nightly snowfall, a Kids Winterfest, extended park hours and holiday-themed shows and exhibits, Winter Nights and Lights, will light up the holidays with colorfully illuminated sculptures of reef fish, flamingos, dolphins, seals, sea lions, killer whales and other marine friends.
Gates are open from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, except for Dec. 24 and 25 when the park will close at 6 p.m.
Winter Nights and Lights also will feature a variety of holiday-themed shows after dark. Come early and enjoy your favorite shows. Stay late for the new holiday spectaculars, “Flipper and the Nutcracker” and “Salty Saves the Holidays.” Also enjoy Top Deck’s Holiday Cruise, a seasonal classic.
“Miami Seaquarium is pleased to make the holidays come alive with Winter Nights and Lights,” said Eric Eimstad, vice president of sales and marketing at Miami Seaquarium. “Quickly becoming a South Florida holiday tradition, Winter Nights and Lights promises to bring the holiday spirit to South Florida.”
Miami Seaquarium, South Florida’s most popular tourist attraction, is a family-oriented marine-life park open to the public 365 days a year. The park, accredited by the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums, provides visitors with a greater understanding and appreciation for marine life through shows, presentations and marine-life exhibits.
